Constantin Film looking to launch Danger Girl movie and TV franchise

THR is reporting that Constantin Film is looking to bring the cult comic book series Danger Girl to the screen, having snapped up the rights to the series from creators J. Scott Campbell and Andy Hartnell.

Constantin will team up with Jeremy Bolt’s Bolt Pictures and Adrian Askarieh’s Prime Universe Films to launch a potential film and TV franchise with female empowerment as the buzzword.

Danger Girl is the perfect opportunity to create a team of grounded, relatable and dangerous young female characters but with humor and spectacular action,” said Bolt.

Danger Girl launched in 1998 through Wildstorm, and followed the adventures of Abbey Chase, who is recruited into Danger Girl Freelance Operations Limited, a secret spy organisation who fights against the neo-Nazi group known as the Hammer Empire along with various other global threats.

The original Danger Girl miniseries spawned a host of further limited series and one-shots,

Drive-In Dust Offs: The Manster (1959)

  • DailyDead
I love wordplay, and portmanteaus are my favourite. Come on over and I’ll tell you about The Manster (1959), part man, part monster, all good B movie madness. Two-headed Americans abroad in Japan is a very specific sub-genre, and underappreciated at that.

Originally released in Japan in July but not released stateside until March of ’62, United Artist Japan’s production was filmed there, and they spared every expense by using the same cardboard sets, flimsy, sparse labs and restaged hotel rooms as their American counterparts. (Papier mache volcano included.) But the mix of Japanese, British, and American actors gives The Manster (Aka The Split) a distinct flavor beyond the two pronged noggin. Oh, and the eyeball in the shoulder. Have I mentioned the caged sister with the melting face?

Our film opens on that mountainside by that gurgling volcano at the secret lab of Dr. Robert Suzuki (Tetsu NakamuraThe Last Dinosaur

Watch Bruce Campbell Tame Snakes in Rare 1984 TV Commercial
When The Evil Dead was released in 1981, it helped launched the careers of star Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi, but long before that club hit, the actor and star made a slew of short films with their high school friends Scott Spiegel and Bill Ward. These shorts were showcased with a new DVD set released in August called Super 8 Shorts, with a second volume just now being released. Along with 11 new short films, many of which have never been publicly released before, this set also features some of Bruce Campbell's early TV commercials, including one you can see below for a Michigan radio station from 1984, three years after the first Evil Dead movie. Here's a description of these DVD sets below, outlining some of the history behind these filmmakers.

Movie Review – Live-Evil (2015)

Live-Evil, 2015.

Directed by Ari Kirshenbaum.

Starring Vladimir Kulich, Charlene Amoia, Vincent M. Ward, Tony Todd, J. Richey Nash, and Karen Wheeling Reynolds

Synopsis:

Supernatural forces are locked into a college town police force’s basement jail. The sheriff and his deputies are subjected to psychic attacks, preying on the fears of the loyal officers and only those with the strongest wills can survive.

It’s that time again campers. The time of year when production companies with any horror films on their slate, push out a release. As it is, Live-Evil has actually been hovering around for a couple of years now but finally has a UK release.

I enjoy a quirky horror film. A film which attempts to do something different. Subvert the genre perhaps or have a little fun. Earlier this year I saw Dolph Lundgren’s enjoyable horror comedy, Don’t Kill It. It felt like a

Bruce Campbell Promises Jaw-Dropping Third Season Of Ash Vs. Evil Dead

For two years on the trot, Ash Vs. Evil Dead laid claim to Starz’s Halloween slate, serving up a delightfully over-the-top dish of blood, guts, and chainsaw-wielding maniacs.

With season 3, though, the network has shuffled its deck in such a way that the horror-comedy series, one rustled up by Sam Raimi, Ivan Raimi, and Tom Spezialy, has now relocated to winter – February 25th, 2018, to be specific – for its third year on the airwaves. Exactly how Ash Vs. Evil Dead will fare in this new slot is up for question, but with Ash Williams (Bruce Campbell) now being championed as a “humanity-saving hometown hero,” we imagine Deadites across the globe will be tuning in come February.

Indeed, as part of the show’s presence at New York Comic Con this past weekend, Campbell told those in attendance that season 3 will be “really, really different” – so different, in fact, that we

Has Bruce Campbell’s Ash Hung Up His Chainsaw For Good?

Bruce Campbell will always be associated with Ash Williams from The Evil Dead. From the series’ splattered beginnings in the 1980s through to the bizarre yet awesome medieval spoof The Army of Darkness, through various spinoff videogames and, most recently, to the sleeper hit Ash vs. Evil Dead. There’s just something about his goofy, matinee idol looks and famously prominent chin that makes him the perfect foil for the deadite hordes.

But now, if we’re reading this interview that Campbell did with Syfy Wire right, Ash might be gone for good. When the outlet asked him a question beginning with, “When you hang up that chainsaw for the last time and Ash is gone, you’re moving on…” Campbell interrupted them with, “Who says I haven’t?”

When pressed on this, he added, “We finished season three of Ash vs Evil Dead. At the end of that season,

Day Of The Dead (1985) and Darkman Deluxe Vinyl Score Re-Issues from Waxwork Records

  • DailyDead
Just like Dr. Logan, Waxwork Records has been keeping busy with new vinyl horror score releases this year, and now they're resurrecting two favorites as re-issues with a slightly new look: George A. Romero's Day of the Dead and Sam Raimi's Darkman:

Press Release: Waxwork Records is beyond thrilled to present George A. Romero’s Day Of The Dead Original Motion Picture Score on deluxe double vinyl. Originally released by Waxwork in 2013 and 2014, and selling out almost immediately, the score to George A. Romero’s Day Of The Dead by composer John Harrison (Creepshow, Tales From The Dark Side) is 100% synth driven, dark, and blends elements of tropical compositions and atonal, droning electronic cues.

In 2013, Waxwork and composer John Harrison unearthed the original, lost 1985 master tapes containing the complete Day Of The Dead film score from the attic of a recording studio in Pittsburgh, Pa. After painstakingly restoring,

Substitute Teaching Takes a Terrifying Turn in the Horror Comedy Short Film The Sub

  • DailyDead
Substitute teaching can be scary on its own terms, but when the faculty and student body are susceptible to Lovecraftian horrors that threaten the Earth's very existence, it can be downright horrifying. That doesn't mean it's without humor, though, as evidenced by Dan Samiljan's new short film The Sub, which you can watch in its entirety right here on Daily Dead.

"Recently completing its festival circuit, The Sub was an official selection of the Nashville Film Fest, the Independent Film Fest of Boston and Scotland’s Dead by Dawn International Horror Film Fest.

The Sub features practical creature effects by Tony Gardner and his Oscar-nominated team at Alterian, Inc. (the Chucky franchise, Bad Grandpa, Army of Darkness), stop-motion animation by Max Winston (Robot Chicken, The SpongeBob Movie), and a cameo by Scream Queen Heather Langenkamp ("Nancy" from the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise).

Hollywood makes a lot of sequels. After all, big budget movies are expensive and time-consuming, meaning that there is an understandable desire for movie studios to minimize their risk by following up on successful movies.

Here are five movies that people often don’t realize are sequels: Army of Darkness There is a surprising number of people who don’t realize that Army of Darkness was the third installment in the Evil Dead franchise.
